A flight to Islay in the late 1940’s. All recall the aeroplane – a Dragon Rapid biplane – was made of wood and canvas and landed in a fog at Islay. All were pretty ‘green’ by the end of the flight. Mother recalled the pilot looking out of the open side window in the cockpit to see where he was going! This photo taken on arrival by Uncle Alan McDonald who was also on the flight.
Here is the type of plane they were travelling in – a 12 seat biplane.
